much in the defense for a very long time. what was really exciting this time was made was the first time we did it for a ballot measure that was because we had been defensive for so long and built such a strong ground game in november talk to everyone in the state for so long about this issue in understanding how people moving along. our work is really changing hearts and minds because we write if you can imagine half the people with you and how far and another sent squishy number in the middle. the question is, are those people really in the middle and just don't know enough about who we are and if we can get those folks to move would have a chance. simeon was a great example of a scene in opportunity and seizing it to go forward and proactively putting something on the ballot measure. i have a lot of folks in this room and i think somebody should be asking, you know, using a ballot measure, so proactively using a ballot measure? i thought you actually would be a post using a ballot measure because that i've been fighting for all along. and i don't think we should ever put in minor

an across the board cut of between 7% and 10% of all defense and non-defense federal spending irrespective of policy or its impact on everyday people. these cuts would be absolutely devastating to our national and local economies. our -- show that sequestration will reduce federal funding direct to san francisco by at least 26.5 million dollars a year, every single year. we would see over $5 million of cut to education, and almost $3 million of cuts from public housing. san francisco's allocation of medicare would be cut by $2 million. funding for the wic workforce program would lose almost $5 million. there would be a $1 million cut to housing services for people with hiv and aids and more than $1 million cut to the community development block grant program. ladies and gentlemen, this is our safety net. and our safety net's already strained by years of state cuts and it cannot sustain these additional reductions in federal funding. in addition to the cuts i have just detailed, there are also competitive grants and state pass-throughs that will also see cuts, and totals for which we really

dome and other u.s.-israel missile defense programs. the bottom line is that is the key here because, as you know, iron dome has been what has been enabling israel to defend itself with all these rockets from gaza raining down. so the promise of even more u.s. aid to grow that system was a big sweetner here to get the prime minister along, trace. >> trace: ed, the president has a complicated relationship with the new egyptian president. >> that's right. president morsey, a member of the muslim brotherhood. there has been lot of weariness about his leadership. bottom line, you will remember a couple of months ago during the campaign, the president said that he wasn't sure if egypt was now an ally. you see secretary clinton was there today though sitting down with president morsey. he has been an important part of getting us to this point. showing some leadership so far though republicans like lindsey graham have trend to cut off u.s. aid to egypt unless he steps up even more. today senator graham, two others republicans said -- put out this tough statement saying, quote: we urge pres

streets, quiet, a sense here there's nothing much to celebrate. the israeli defense minister said this is a cease-fire that he believes will be recognized and enforced but also said, judging by experience, it may not last very long. that's what we have here in israel. skepticism about the cease-fire. great hope it will last. another development this morning, the israelis on the west bank arrested about 55 members of the hamas and other islamic militant organizations in gaza, saying that they represented the terrorist threat and that follows the bus bomb yesterday here in tel aviv. the first bus bomb, first bomb attack in tel aviv in six years. that's a reminder that although israel now has a cease-fire in gaza and everyone's working on maintaining the cease-fire and enforcing it, israel has plenty of other problems, too, it needs to face up with. >> martin fletcher, thank you. >>> back here at home, millions of people hitting the roads, the runways and malls over the next 72 hours. what can we expect from mother nature? meteorologist bill karins has the turkey day forecast. happy

[ticking] coming up, the complex financial instrument that helped down the u.s. economy. >> the idea that you could lend money to someone who couldn't pay it back is not an inherently attractive idea to the layman, right? however, it seemed to fly with people who were makin
plan to the president he argued if the seal team had tripped pakistan's defenses tripped their alarms, and his men found themselves surrounded by pakistan's armed forces and air force that he advised that they strong arm the compound and wait for washington to negotiate their extraction. it was president obama who said no, if you're going in, i want you to go in with enough force to fight your way out of the% country if necessary. clearly that was embracing of a large risk. that was embracing the possibility of actually getting in a shooting war with pakistan. so it did surprise me that it would be the president who would demand they go in in force as opposed to the military commander. >> eliot: that is fascinating because one presumes had there been a stand off that could have been negotiated out. fascinating and i'm sure there will be more, and maybe you'll write more about that as time goes on. mark bowden, author of the spectacular new book" the finish" the killing of osama bin laden. thank you for your time tonight. >> thank you eliot. >> eliot: the decision with the potential to
out actually teaching self-defense to girls. what was striking to me was i was not going to the root causes why kids were getting into situations or losing their voice. i created a course called speaking up then decided to write a book because i thought i was working with girls a lot, people didn't seem to understand, they wanted to talk about issues of girls but they didn't understand or weren't thinking about the larger consequences of how girls were interacting with each other. i was working with boys in equal numbers to girls, i have always continued to do that, but i wrote queen bees and wanna-be's to show the unwritten rules, what could we do to be more credible and competent in the lives of girls. that is what i do. in fact, when lee came to me about 3 or 4 years ago, we were at a party, a mutual friend's birthday party, i know a lot of people do work pretty similar to ours, people come to you and say i want to do this bullying thing. i probably get an email a day today from 12 to 14-year-old kid saying they are doing a music video about bullying, right? >> which is awesome
regimes. our operation was purely defensive. our goal was to protect our people so that the population of southern israel would not have to live in daily fear. i hope, i hope, that these understandings rich with egypt and with the united states as well and we should thank the american government will hold and that we get peace. that is good for israel and also good for gaza. >> thank you very much for joining me. >> my pleasure, sir. >> he joins me now, welcome to you, sir. how much of a concern is it to you, that hamas had nothing to do with this cease fire. >> palestine and the question is not the issue. gaza is part of the palestinian people. and the question of leadership, it is authentic. people elected leader but if the americans try to divert the attention of the central issue of how to go about controlling one party or another, this would be a great mistake to peace in the region >> are you concerned that all the dealings here appear to be have been done directly with hamas and not with a wider group? >> president was not absent from the negotiations. of course when there is a
across the street from the defense ministry. this iet said -- this eyewitness said he thought it was rocket. more than 20 that were wounded they say it was an ide. at least 20 rockets fired out of gaza hours after the deal. >> dan: in gaza tonight, enormous relief. people breaking out into spontaneous celebration. >>> the green flags were raised across the gaza strip. palestinians poured into the streets. >> there is sense of relief on the street but this a victory celebration. after a week of fighting with israel, the palestinians feel like they have won. >> won because for the first time militant groups were able to fire rockets into israel's biggest city, jerusalem and tel aviv. >> do you believe it is a turning point. >> it is huge. >> in the final hours, both sides kept pounding away at each other. israeli air strike leveled this building. naval artillery from the sea and landed close. human cost was huge. here in georgia, 160 dead and 200 wounded. >> dan: back here, heartbreak for a san francisco man already suffering from chronic illness. now someone has stolen his belo
defense project. the two things stated previously is the excitement around this project, around just alone bringing basketball to san francisco. and secondly, jobs. the prospect of having jobs and jobs now for low-income communities in san francisco through the local hire agreement that was just signed last week, for instance. but to seriously address the quality of life and neighborhood issues are incredibly important and we'd like to commend, first of all, the mta, oewd, and the architect for addressing these issues in the process, having sensitivity in the process and addressing traffic, views, night life and open space. and even amongst the committee as well, we've seen as well sensitive in the process in addressing things such as open space. supervisor kim, for instance, had a specific question on making sure it's reusable open space. that goes to show precision being used to address these issues being brought up by the neighborhoods affected by the project. and that's incredibly important. and, so, while speed can be sometimes a bad thing, that a slow process in and of itself is not
's a sense there's nothing much to celebrate. even the defense minister said he expects it to be honored but could be a short term cease-fire. the israeli army is beginning a drawdown of its israel armed troops at the borders being slowly sent home over the next few days and waiting to see if the cease-fire does last. the schools have not yet resumed operation within the south. all schools within 25 kilometers of the gaza border last week have been closed and many children sent north to safety. they still haven't been opened, waiting again to see if the cease-fire really does hold. at the moment, this agreement, there's still a lot to be negotiated on, still a lot to be worked on. the only agreement is quiet for quiet the israelis have stopped attacking and israel has stopped attacking. will it stop assassinating palestinian leaders? will it release its hold and grip on boarder crossings to gaza, also to be negotiated in this same sense, the question is will israel stop -- will israel stop its attacks on gaza. all waiting to be seen. meanwhile, peace for the time being. veronica. >> that

will arguably be defensible from their point of view, should she in fact be nominated, which i think will be the case. ainsley: let me talk about that with you. 97 republicans in the house sent president obama a letter saying they oppose that potential nomination. they say her comments were misleading statements, that they caused eery pair rabl damage to her credibility. do you think she should take over tore hillary clinton if hillary clinton decides tow resign? >> no i don't. the nomination is certainly the president's to make if he wants to choose to have that fight with the congress and the american people he's going to have a lot of explaining to do, so will she, so will the director of national intelligence, james clapper to which doug referred. clappers initial statement is we didn't have anything tow do with removing the language. then they come out, yes we did. they are all over the map. susan rice has serious explaining to do. you mentioned the 97 republicans if the house who have gone on the record oppose her nomination as state, you have serious republicans in the u.s. se

[applause] >> thank you. >> this is a little bit politically incorrect, but i was wondering about the actions of sheridan and what are considered war crimes now. >> war crimes? well, certainly what they did on the great plains would be war crimes. what they did in georgia in the shenandoah valley, i'm not so sure. they tried to save civilian lives. the purpose was to destroy resources and their ability to wage war. i think that would be arguable. but certainly a very good point.

colorado was led by justice brower chris byron white. despite the stellar offensive and defensive performance from white, which included a touchdown pass and extra points, the owls prevailed. not even president law that could have foreseen that. when he spoke of 100 years ago, the newspapers in this state and around the nation took due note that something big was happening in texas. the new york times reported that president love it had attracted an array of the learning such as had seldom been assembled in the united states. another paper waxed mystically and observed that the president's speech coincided with the early evening appearance of both jupiter and venus and suggested that the evening sky was an all glory of a bright future for the institute. not every newspaper was as perceptive or trance jed -- transcended. one local journal reported the founding of rice in the same column that the news that congo, the largest circus elephant, was coming to town. as i said i will keep my remarks a great great great deal shorter, but i would like to close with a personal word of congra
